Christmas What?!?!?

I'm expanding my paper products to include Christmas cards. This is an idea I just came up with today. It's a 7x7 un-layered panel with a lined vellum overlay. "Merry Christmas" and a greeting are printed on the card and the vellum overlay has a Christmas tree on it. Everything is tied together like a gift with a satin red 1/2 inch ribbon. A white, red or green envelope will complete this greeting card perfectly!

This would be very pretty with different graphics such as a gift, Christmas tree ornaments and so would also make a cute birth announcement, birthday invitation...or really anything!

Annual Family BBQ

My husband's family gets to gether every year for a family BBQ. This year my sister and brother-in-law are hosting. I offered to make invitations for the event and came up with these adorable bright green, dark purple and white invitations!

Kristi's Rehearsal Dinner and Day After Brunch Invites

Kristi contacted me about a month before her wedding with an idea in mind for what she wanted. She showed me the damask graphic that she liked and I was able to use the light pink paper and burgundy ink as a contrast. The package includes a 5x7 RD invite and a 4x5 Brunch invite.

And More Samples...

I've had all these samples done for quite some was just a matter of getting a break in the action to get them blogged and put on my website. Ahhh...sigh of relief!

Samples, Samples, Samples!!!

Above is a basic black and white seating chart that includes the menu in the bottom center and guest names along the left and right sides. Also included here is a 2 tone seating chart using aqua and black...the color possibilities are endless!

Sarah and Mike's Purple Invitation!

I am in LOVE with Sarah's invitation, not only is it my first portable folder, but she picked the most gorgeous colors! Originally the invitation was supposed to be printed on white metallic paper, but our final "consult" I persuaded her into going with this very light purple. The white looked nice, but it was just way too bright with the dark purple and black linen folder and envelopes. To complete her set, I made envelope sashes using the light purple (since the envelopes are black, there is no way to print on them), guest tags for the front of the pocket, invitation, accommodations card and a two sided RSVP with envelope. I tied her graphic in wherever I could making this a very "over the top" invitation. I hope they are just as happy with their invitations as I am!

Meghan's Table Numbers!

I created Meghan and Brad's table numbers to match their wedding invitations (June). I put together this beautiful monogram that adorns the top of all the table numbers, front and back. I used the same Calla Lily graphic from their invitations to tie everything in together. I am so happy that they really liked their table numbers!!!

Jennifer's Wedding Thank You's

I made Jennifer's thank you cards for her wedding. I used the Mehindi Love Bird design that was used throughout her wedding and reception and chose a simple "thank you" rather than a monogram. I used white metallic folded card with brown printing and tied the hot pink envelope in to match her wedding theme.
